When I first heard "No Mans Land" it was a bonus track without a name, which gave it that mysterious vibe. Even the opening of the song has a hypnotizing and strange feel to it that hooked me right away. First and foremost, I'm a fan of hidden tracks and bonus songs, ala Aesop Rock "Pigs" at the end of 'None Shall Pass', Green Day "All By Myself" at the end of 'Nookie'. The last track is the closing of a good book and should rightfully complement the albums ending, even though this track is more or less "unlisted" and not so much "hidden" it very well is the ending of the album the way Common Labor intended, in my opinion. ... the hook says it all "How do you leave when you have no exit?"

This haunting song can originally be found at the end of the physical copy of "Tales of the Troubadours" - Common Labor's debut album.
